OUTLAW PROPHET: WARREN JEFFS (LIFETIME)
BROADCAST HISTORY:
6/28/14
STATUS:
telefilm/mini-series in the can
DESCRIPTION:
(from Lifetime's press release, May 2014) Tony Goldwyn (Scandal, Divergent), Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Crimes and Misdemeanors), Molly Parker (House of Cards, Deadwood) and Joey King (Fargo, Crazy Stupid Love) star in the Lifetime Original Movie Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs, from Sony Pictures Television, premiering Saturday, June 28, at 8pm ET/PT. Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs is the true story of the fundamentalist Mormon leader who spent more than a year on the FBI's "10 Most Wanted List" for unlawful flight on charges related to his alleged arrangement of illegal marriages involving underage girls. Based on the book When Men Become Gods, by New York Times bestselling author Stephen Singular, the movie chronicles Jeffs' (Goldwyn) rise to power after the death of his father, Rulon Jeffs (Landau). Within days of his father's passing, Warren married all of his father's wives and dictatorial control over his polygamist followers ensued. He demanded women in the sect be completely subservient to men, banned laughing and "reassigned" wives to other men at whim. Jeffs was eventually charged as an accomplice to rape for arranging underage marriages but fled prosecution. After a year-long manhunt, he was finally apprehended in Texas and brought back to trial. The courtroom testimony of two brave young women who escaped his reign of terror ensured he would finally be convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs gives an inside look at the psychology of a cult leader and those who blindly followed him. Even to this day with their leader behind bars, members of his polygamist cult still believe that he is the prophet chosen by God himself.
